Dear Cipora, when you are hungry and when you are in danger, you do not care where the food or guns are coming from. In South Lebanon were were bombarded by Israel, we lost our farms to war and to mines. We did not have any income or good standard of living to begin with. Iran came and helped, build schools, roads and financed the arming of the population. This was a result of an occupation. Syria does not have a lot of money, they do not get billion of Dollars from Russia or US like Israel does. They will take arms and money from any one. They will even take it from the JEWS if they can get it to arm and defend themselves. It is all a matter of survival. When the threat is gone so is the dependence on Iran. Make peace with Syrian and Iran will be out of the equation.
